Do you ever think to yourself, … “This can’t be real life… Can it?” …. “People wouldn’t seriously be like this… would they?” …. “There would not be this many ironies, parallels to manipulation and psychological destruction…. would there be?” … “My life shouldn’t feel like a psychological horror story… should it?” …
Ha. Well, maybe not that last sentence, or two…, but I’m sure someone out there can relate to the first one. I literally feel like I am trapped in some sort of manipulative, psychological, horror story, brainwashing, mind fuck of a life and situation… I feel like my life too closely related to that of a great thriller like American Horror Story, but only in a realistic way of course. It’s like I have to get home from work and re convince myself of what is reality and what is make believe, and it’s insane. All I can think about is that I am trapped in a corruptive place that pressures me, pushes me into religion, forces me to listen to religious music all day, plasters religious quotes on the wall and makes us sit through prayer in our staff meetings. They talk about God in normal conversation now more than ever and yet they are the most corruptive and manipulative people I have ever met in my whole life and seem to seek nothing more than to brainwash and trap me into their possession.
With all that has happened in the entire year that I have worked there and more specifically even the last month, I can’t believe that I still show up every day. I am so firmly trapped between my passions for the holistic and alternative field, chiropractic care and nutrition, all the people I see as patients every day and four ladies that I work with, that I can’t seem to break through the barriers of corruption and demonic psychological mind games and leave. To backtrack briefly through the history, I have never had a job so easy to go to, at least not for a long while, especially one that I started off part time too but then quickly grew to full time when they randomly, spontaneously started unveiling the corruption to me and fired my friend and coworker who was my superior and trainer and worked with them for about 2 years already. I took on her hours and roles and quickly transformed to a more involved and exceeded individual in 1/4 as much time as she did. They started kissing my ass immediately and increased my pay, filled me with stories of the future and the magical fruit it could bring and would create this bubble like dream of perfection to keep me showing up every morning. The specific stories and details could take forever to explain but for the most part the days were survivable due to the love and passion for what you do and what you do for other people in this field and somehow I was able to tune out the rest of the bullshit for awhile. I was able to avoid a lot of the pressure of religion and God and follow the routine of things.
Around mid-December, about 6 month into this blissful behind curtain view of things, everything started to intensify and become more out of this world insane to have to be dealing with. In a nutshell I was manipulated or trapped into being offered a Christmas bonus but cornered into agreeing to go on a trip to a seminar instead all in that same evening, without getting to think about it or decide or talk to my spouse about it. In the end there was no way I wanted to choose a very uncomfortable and uncorrected situation with them and I was forced to within two days state that I did not want to do so. I was wound through another week of torture and manipulate and private cornered office meetings to dig deeper and force me into attending this seminar instead and taking blows at my personal life and my spouse tied to this seminar and my decisions. It was very stressful and uncomfortable period of time to deal with. I finally thought it had all blown over and was going to be tolerable again for a period of time where I could start to figure out my next step and where to go from here type of thing and way out, and everything decides to intensify right away again.
They decide to tell us in a staff meeting that now the radio station is strictly banned from ever changing from the religious station, it used to be like a every few day battle of me changing it to other stations for some variety and sanity and him changing it to religious station, but now it was never able to change. And I am telling you, that for me, listening to that is like torture! They literally play the same 10 Jesus loving, worshipping, catchy songs that become engraved in your subconscious like mosquitos attached to you in the summertime and I will find myself at home accidentally humming or thinking of the tunes and the lyrics suddenly come flooding into my realization and I want to bash my head in the wall or blast loud Lady Gaga until I fall asleep… I already feel like I am fighting a brainwashing super bug challenge and then comes the Intern.
Our last Intern was done in November and never anything that affected my life one way or another. He was secretly in love with a Therapist that no longer worked there after the summer and helped out with a lot of things and added zero value to a lot of other things. I never cared one way or another. Then we did not have one for a few months and my life just seemed normal after time. Well, we get assigned another one, he starts last week and is there 4 days of the week, every day but Tuesday. He just so happens to be taller, attractive, sandy blond, well dressed, outgoing, flirtatious, smart and have his shit together… AND be a Pisces…. A mother fucking Pisces. The ONLY sign in the zodiac that would ever give Scorpio (my boyfriend) a run for it’s money when it comes to a Cancer like me. Only the sign of my very best friend growing up of like 10 years, my one true emotional soulmate and the only other sign (water sign) and sign that could be my hearts other half. And of course he is like the best thing since sliced bread, sucks up to me – flirts and follows me around everywhere kissing my ass and asking me questions about my life. Of course he is hot and dresses perfect and is the best thing we could ask for, for an intern and the help that we need and is the exact same age as me and from Wisconsin and likes football and to travel and is genuinely (or appears to be) in learning about people and asking them questions about their lives… Of course he flirts and makes innuendoes at you to make your mind start going in directions it does not knowingly want to go. It is like he was put there to literally test me. Its like a parallel to American Horror Story and he is the demonic ghost that magically appeared all perfect and desirable to wrap you in and drawn you into the dark side and you have to continue to fight to maintain who you are and what you are while you are trapped in this brain washing, manipulative, psychological, thriller nightmare that you almost at the same time can’t get enough of….. Did you catch that? Ugh. It’s just so frustrating because it is one of those things that is ALL consuming. All day, all night, can’t stop thinking about it and tossing and turning everything in my head. Makes me love my job, makes me hate my job. Not to mention everything else going on with my job. It’s just this cluster fuck of emotion and problem, emotion and problem… and I’m just waiting for the Universe to sort itself all out and point me in the right direction, let me escape from that which traps me and make me be in the right place at the right time.
I’m exhausted. That’s all I can even discuss right now. Just the icing on the cake people. Just the icing. And it’s so much for an emotional, over thinking Cancer like myself.
